Hi I'm Brad Couch

I'm from Virginia. I love to hunt, fish, and be outdoors. I'm currently serving a full-time mission in Las Vegas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised all over the country in states such as North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Nebraska, Alabama, and Virginia. I'm an avid outdoorsman and have been ever since I was a kid. My parents raised me on principles of love and hard work. I started working at an early age doing odd jobs, however, my favorite thing to do is farm work because it teaches you the definition of hard work. My parents raised me in the church and have always taught me that God is our loving Heavenly Father and he cares for each one of his children.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because over my life and through the experiences I've had, I have come to know that this church is true. Even though I was raised in the church I had to find out for myself if it was actually true. I did that through reading the Book of Mormon and praying about it, which is what anyone can do to know that this is Christ's church here on earth. I can't deny the happiness that the gospel has brought into my life and how much it has blessed me and my family.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a good example to those around me. Growing up, I didn't really have a lot of friends of the LDS faith because there were never many members in the places we lived. My nonmember friends would always ask me about what it was like to be a Mormon and what we believed in. I would explain to them that we're normal people too and we believe in God the Eternal Father and in his son Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost. Currently, I am serving a two year mission in the Nevada Las Vegas West Mission. As a missionary, I have the opportunity to share the gospel with everyone I come in contact with and bless their lives with the happiness that the gospel brings.
